So yeah... you know the story. Things have been crazy, I've been out of town, I've been lazy- blah, blah, blah. I have just been in a blogging rut and have even been slacking on my picture taking- well maybe not compared to others but compared to how many pictures I usually take, yeah- slacker here. So I think I'm over it and hopefully the rut is gone. I just need someone to give me a swift kick in the bum. I'll be working on catching up on things I need to blog about but in the meantime I'm gonna make another fresh start and be back to blogging daily. I almost made it to my goal of having one full year of a post for every day but instead of feeling overwhelmed at trying to get it all caught up and stuff I'll just say good job Sarah at how well I did and not get down on what I didn't and try again starting today. So today was a pretty good day. Yesterday I finally got my house picked up and in order after the craziness from getting back from a long vacation. So today I was tired and really wanted to just take it easy. Some people may call it lazy, and honestly I was a lil' bit of that, but I enjoyed my easy peasy day. I had fun spending a lot of quality time with my kiddos- playing, laughing, dancing, tickling... good stuff. You can see my super cute kiddos in the slide show below. I'm pretty sure they're the cutest kids ever. I also started and read a few chapters in a book I've been wanting to read forever that my awesome lil' bro Alex got for me- Sense And Sensibility. I love reading but I never make time for it. So instead of over-analyzing and thinking too much about the pros and cons of starting and reading this particular book and what I should read before it and avoiding my crazy thought process of making a simple decision, I just started reading. I think I'll like it- if I can keep myself convinced that it really is ok for me to read a book and not use that time for something more productive that I don't do anyway. So anyway... sorry for the rambling. Tonight after a scrumptious dinner of chicken enchiladas and spanish rice (something about being away from home and not cooking really makes you enjoy home-cooked meals so much more), it was time for my all-time fave show, So You Think You Can Dance. I was only able to watch the first half though since I had an appointment with our Bishop but don't you worry... the 2nd half is recorded and just waiting to be watched by my eager eyes tomorrow. I have to say I'm not as crazy about this season's competitors as the previous years but I still love the show and the dancing so much. Katee and Joshua are my faves for sure and a close second would be Chelsea and Mark. And I think my overall fave person is probably Joshua. He's just so sweet and humble and wow... I just love him. Anywho, I was pretty apprehensive and anxious about this interview our Bishop scheduled for us as there's a lot of shaking up going in our ward with releasings and callings of most of the ward Auxiliary Presidencies. So I was pretty sure one of us was getting a calling and I was right. However, all I can say for now, (it's a secret ya' know), is that I was totally flabbergasted by the calling that came. And that's all I have to say about that for now. More on that on Sunday so stay tuned. Oh and Robert and I also got asked to give talks in church on Sunday. I'm actually kind of excited about that even though it's a little overwhelming. I always love how much I learn when I prepare a talk for church. The topic is honesty and integrity and Robert has to talk about being honest with our fellow men and I get to talk about honesty and integrity with ourselves and with God. It's a good one. It feels good to be blogging again. Now if only I can wave a magic wand and all that I want to be caught up would be done. Until I find that wand though stay tuned and be patient... be very, very patient. Love you all!
